    University of Melbourne - Residential Colleges

    literally nothing I'm afraid hahah. Although I was non-res last semester and I lived at UniLodge - which was disgusting, my bike got stolen and there were bugs everywhere and every 5 minutes the shower was broken. I heard that student village, where a friend of mine did stay, is a lot nicer...

    University of Melbourne - Residential Colleges

    Hi, I go to University College and I can offer you some advice. If you want some stereotypes: Trinity/Ormond College: Extremely competitive to get into. Hands down the best facilities out of all of the colleges - Ormond in particular. Both these colleges are massive! Ormond in particular -...

    Adelaide Second Round Medicine Interviews

    UQ Guaranteed pathway to medicine is what I'm hoping for at the moment. Love the sound of UQ as a uni and would be insanely happy to end up there. I was just hoping for a potential Adelaide interview as "another hope" i guess hahaha. The more places you get interview offers the better right? :)

    Guaranteed Medicine at UQ

    So is a total UMAT of 178 borderline for UQ bonded? I thought it was rather likely as the cut-off for bonded offers in 2014 was 169ish. Also, as my Section 1 was quite average (58) does that put me at a disadvantage? Thanks for your help

    Students who achieved an ATAR of 85+, what did you do differently?

    With me, it was all about a continual effort over the course of the year. I made it my goal to do at least 2 english practice essays per week - under timed conditions in the lead up to the exams. Pester the hell out of your teachers, if they dont sigh when they see you walk up to them - youre...

    Guaranteed Medicine at UQ

    I would love an offer from UNSW but i doubt thats happening unless they think i have a sparkling personality hahaha.

    Guaranteed Medicine at UQ

    Hey Guys! I just completed HSC this year with an ATAR of 99.15 (OP 1 equivalent). I was just wondering if anyone had any information as to whether this score- with my UMAT mark of 88 (58, 54, 66), - was enough to receive an offer to UQ guaranteed medical pathway - bonded or unbonded...
